Preparations for TEF – staff talk on 19 July

Colleagues are invited to an update on Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes (TEF) Framework and Subject Level Pilots, by Professor April McMahon, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education. The update will take place on Friday 19 July from 13.30 to 14.30 in Grimond LT1 (Canterbury campus), and then repeated on Friday 13 September from 13.30 to 14.30 (venue tbc).

The presentation is part of our preparations for the next round on TEF. It will include a general update on the TEF framework and its development following the completion of the second year of testing pilot options for subject level assessment. The presentation will also outline what TEF is, how it works, and what it is for, and consider some of the challenges and benefits of including a subject level perspective.

April will discuss some of the work we are doing at the University of Kent to prepare for subject-level TEF, and how important it is for us to approach this as a university community, with academic, professional and student perspectives all contributing and everyone having a role to play.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on either 19 July or 13 September. If you are unable to attend, you can listen to the 19 July event via this link (available to anyone with a Kent IT account).
